Falahari Maharaj case : more such cases to come up says victim’s father. A 21 year old girl alleged self styled godman Kaushlendra Falahari Maharaj of rape. Alwar police on Friday took the girl who narrated whole incident to them and said that incident allegedly took place in the ashram and police made a map of place on the basis of her statement.A native girl of Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh, arrived Alwar accompanied by her parents on Thursday evening after which police interrogated her. According to Rahul Prakash, Alwar superintendent of police, no contradictions were found between her statement on Thursday and her earlier statement.
However, the police have not arrested the godman, as he is admitted in a hospital since Wednesday. Hospital administration has repeatedly said that the Maharaj was healthy enough to be taken out of the facility. Maharaj was shifted to the general ward of the hospital from the ICU on Friday.Maharaj, 70, commands a strong following and the delay in his arrest has raised speculation that police may be holding back due to political pressure.
Victim’s father said that more such cases would raise their heads as the investigation proceeds. He said that, “There are more such cases which will come up now, devotees associated with the godman who couldn’t come forward earlier because of fear, they will come up… Soon, the reality of the man will be revealed,” he said.The rape case was filed by the girl from Chhattisgarh, who disclosed that she got motivation after the conviction of another rapist godman — Dera Sacha Sauda’s Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. A police case has been registered in Chhattisgarh’s Bilaspur on September 11, and the files were brought to Alwar, Maharaj’s base on September 20.
